Directing Virgin No More | Virgins: A Musical Threesome

My journey from first spark of wanting to be a director, to seeing the completion of my first show under my own company, has been both long and succinct, and ridiculously exciting.

Once I realized I wanted to branch out from just being on the stage, to taking an active role behind the scenes, I started to map out my plan. It seemed like a clear route would be to get in contact with directors I had worked with in the past, that I had really respected and admired, and make myself available in any way they needed, and in return I could shadow their process and learn on the job.

The first company to bite, was Springboard Theatre Productions. They gave me the opportunity to play assistant director to Dawn Ewen. It was an amazing opportunity, that only fuelled my fire to push further and seek more experiences like it.

The next shot I had at it, was working with Ryan Mooney and his company, Fighting Chance Productions. The show was Into the Woods, and working with Ryan gave me the "fighting chance" to stretch my muscles and cautiously navigate my way through small moments with actors, talking story and character and intentions - everything that gets my gears running!

It seems only appropriate that after my first producer/director job, I return to work with Dawn, as I assistant produce, and act in, her latest show: Little Miss Glitz with TooFly Productions.

As well, I get to put my director hat back on, as I join forces once again with Fighting Chance Productions with their upcoming show: Virgins: A Musical Threesome. The show is a collection of three separate, short musicals, featuring hilarious stories revolving around women. Ryan Mooney has given each of his three past assistant directors the opportunity to take charge of one segment of the show each, and I am thrilled to get to tackle my part alongside fantastic directors, Nancy Von Euw and Jennifer Suratos.

I'm so excited about both of these shows - and check back here soon for more information on the progress of both Little Miss Glitz and Virgins!
